Peacock’s new gripping drama series, Save Me Too, premieres today and I had the opportunity to sit down with executive producer and star, Lennie James (Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead, and Colombiana). The show is the second season of the award-winning thriller Save Me, which is currently streaming on Peacock as well. Lennie created, wrote, and stars in the star-studded British series. The show won the Best Writer for a Drama series and Best Drama Series awards at the 2019 RTS Awards and was nominated for a BAFTA for the Outstanding Drama Series Award.
In the dramatic continuation of season one, Save Me Too heads deeper into a dark, hidden world. Nelly Rowe’s life was turned upside down when he was accused of abducting the daughter he barely knew. Now, 17 months later, his daughter Jody is still missing but Nelly’s quest to find her lives on as he put his relationships, and his life, on the line. New potential suspects are revealed, and long-buried secrets unearthed as Nelly is torn between protecting Grace, the young woman he found in a caravan park, and continuing his mission to find Jody.
I caught up with Lennie and talked all things 2020 and his new show. You can catch our full conversation below.
